{June 14, 2013}   God Believes in Love

Love“Those who oppose marriage equality for gay or lesbian couples, pleading for us not to “redefine” marriage, do not understand that gay marriage only builds up the traditional meaning of marriage. We are not changing its meaning but merely revising the list of those to whom it is available. Not unlike the rather recent opening of legal marriage to interracial couples, the legal marriage of two same-gendered people retains the traditional meaning of marriage while expanding the number of people whom it may benefit.”

 

The above is an excerpt from Gene Robinson’s book God Believes in Love: Straight Talk About Gay Marriage. I’m reading this book now and when I came across this little paragraph it struck a chord with me. Could anyone possibly explain this better than he did?!

All You Need Is Love!

Even though gay marriage was ‘legalized’ in my State in 2010, I won’t be happy until everyone is free to marry whomever they like.



{May 28, 2013}   My Girl

I’m humming The Temptations song now.
I think it’s sweet that Babe always curls up with the clothes I wore all day. It must be because they smell like me. Kind of like when I was little and I’d wear my Dad’s t-shirts as night shirts because they “smelled like Daddy”.

Babe curled up on my jeans, sleeping soundly.

My only complaint today is that I’m going on 34 hours without sleep. The pain makes any attempt at restful sleep impossible. I’m so exhausted I’ve been sick to my stomach.

The next four days are going to be very busy and long. Tomorrow I have a meeting at the Fire Station, then physical therapy followed by a visit to the pain clinic.  Then I have to get up at 04:30 Thursday morning to take my best friend for surgery, where I will stay the night with her and bring her home Friday afternoon. Then Saturday is the big day- my brother is getting married!

It will be a miracle if I don’t have a meltdown before it’s all over. It doesn’t take much to overwhelm me.



{April 22, 2012}   *~Too Far Gone~*

She wears a
fake smile, don’t
believe her when
she says she’s
fine.
She’ll laugh at
your jokes, then
sit alone and
cry.
She’s too stubborn
to admit she’s
wrong, too hard
headed to confess
she’s sick of her
life.
She married much
too young, didn’t
get to see
the world, didn’t
know there was
better waiting for
her.
Now she’s lonely
in a marriage
she wished she
never vowed, too
scared of being
single, too proud
to let you see the
hurt.
I tried my
best to help
her see life
through a clear
lens, wiped her
tears, held her
hand, no longer
can I hold her
pain, for you
can’t help someone
who refuses to
change.
